When it comes to the angles and other spiritual beings, they either stand with God or against Him. Even the animals follow nature and their instincts according to design. In any case, no matter how extreme, their pattern of behavior is an expected one. Mankind on the other hand possesses a quality radically different in scope. According to scripture, man is fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). This is because man has been given a choice in the course of his direction. God called the children of Israel stiff-necked, and they were His chosen (Exodus 32:9). How much more so is the man who chooses not to walk with God to be found rebellious and evil? History has recorded an account of just how fearful mankind can be, and it has also shown us those moments where we shine wonderful in the sight of all. I pray that more of us would learn to use this gift of choice more correctly.
